Need a tailgate for my 2004 LJ - located in Houston, TX. Dedicated trail rig so used is fine and color doesn't really matter - would just like to find one that comes with latch, handle, hinges and spare carrier.

Any recs in Houston or general Texas/Gulf Coast area?
Is there a website where you can search salvage yards rather than calling every single one?

Also, been told TJ tailgate is different 97-2002 vs 2003-2006 - but also told it is just the vent and if running a soft top it doesn't matter? Can anyone confirm?

Any help appreciated.

Check with Jacked up Jeeps in Cleveland. If they don’t have one, they may know where you can get one.
